In July of 2012 Brooke and Mike contacted a good colleague of mine, Luis of Legacy Sound DJs, about their wedding. Being booked for that date already, he referred them to me. I picked up the conversation where Luis left off, and we met to discuss details. Things went well, and they booked a little over a week afterwards. They added on my dance floor lighting, battery pack for ceremony, and microphone+speakers only ceremony service.

Note: Most of the photos in this blog were provided by ABM Photography, an amazing group of photographers who I really enjoy working with!

La Jolla Wedding Ceremony – Calumet Park

The ceremony was in La Jolla at Calumet Park. They had a quartet for their ceremony music but I used my battery-pack to provide powered speakers and a wireless microphone for the ceremony.

Brooke and Mike had their reception in the Pacific Ballroom. They chose my enhanced dance floor lighting which includes a texture light. For their texture light, they went with the H2O water effect (which makes sense because Mike is a huge surfer!)

Bali Hai Wedding DJ Review

I received this five-star review from Mike and Brooke, posted to Yelp. It was much appreciated!

It was such a pleasure working with Dennis for our big day! We have had so many of our guests tell us our wedding has been the best wedding they’ve ever been to! There were so many compliments regarding the music and how fun the entire night was, so thank you, Dennis, for being the DJ you are, I am so grateful we found you!
He made our first dance absolutely so special, it truly made our night and put everything in complete perspective of our wedding day!
Dennis truly is the Creative Music DJ, you will be sorry that you didn’t hire him!
